That's what I've been saying all along. But maybe they will be nice enough to at least make the engine a 302ci next Gen motor, then it will carry over some history to the new tech.

What's all this bullshit about Z28 being a "track star" or something "truly special". The Z28 name has just indicated that the car's a performance model since the early 70s.

My IROC has a Z28 badges all over the place, and it's no stripped down track car.

Because it was something "truly special".


"What's important to remember about the Z/28 is how unique its mission was. While the rest of the Camaro lineup was designed and built around standard street car parameters (a trait Car and Driver referred to as "a polished lack of character"), the Z/28 was produced to homologate a race car package; the parts selected fell within higher specifications not usually used by Detroit carmakers. By doing so, Chevrolet, unwittingly or not, came close to building one of the best American sports sedans ever made. "With the Z/28," Car and Driver observed, "Chevy is on the way toward making the gutsy stormer the Camaro should have been in the first place."

Don't forget to put the 302 emblem on the cowl hood and have an 8000 rpm red line. Ya know to keep some history.

The original Z/28 was build for Trans Am racing which is why is had the 302 engine. So yes, the Z/28 was a track star, no bullshit.

Hopefully it's a good sign for a Z28 on the 5th gen. I personally was shocked when they chose ZL1 over the name Z28 but the Z28 should probably be a higher performance edition that the SS yet lower & a little less expensive than the ZL1.

I hope they don't make a Camaro sedan. I think it would deminish the Camaro brand. Leave a good thing alone. Modify and improve, but not with extras doors.

Why didn't I think of trademarking Z28?

I could have traded them the trademark for a free Z28.

Any other old GM trademarks out there that have expired?

They actually had a first gen Camaro sport wagon prototype.

IMO I am guessing the z28 will be reintroduced with the 6th gen, they probably already have it half developed and they know the smaller/lighter version is perfect for the road course z28!
